Getting a slide cut does not mean you are stuck with an rmr. Other than the IOS, there are other guys who will cut the slide for a plate, so you can change optics as needed. C&H is one that does good work, and there are others.I can adjust to the height issue during the trials with a rmr.
I just do not want to cut a slide . Then I am stuck withthe rmr. THat is why a dovetail mount r the IOS is a better option for my purposes.
I am not a competition shooting. JUst someone hwo enjoys shooting all types of guns and options
